We switched to a new garbage collection system by placing solid containers. After testing the system by making trials in pilot areas, we implemented the application in all of our 21 central neighborhoods in 2020-2021. By the end of 2021, our distribution of garbage containers and recycling bins in all our neighborhoods has been completed. Our groups in 2 years; 17 thousand 228 units of 120 liters, 3 thousand 418 units of 240 liters and 970 units of 770 liters, in total 21 thousand 616 personal garbage containers were distributed. Recycling bins with containers were distributed to 90,616 households for one-on-one on-site sorting.”

He said that information studies are carried out on the point of reducing the waste and, in case of formation, separating it at the source and recycling it.

While aiming to increase the recycling collection rate up to 100 percent with the studies, Lider Taban noted that the monthly average of 300 tons of recycling wastes has reached the level of 500 tons at the point we have reached today. Tons of packaging waste was collected. When we looked at what this collected waste brought us, we saw that we achieved significant gains in terms of vital values, aside from the material aspect of the business.
